Lucia Ferrara is a lead recovery support specialist in the My First Year of Recovery Program. In this role, she supports and guides both clients and their family members in the year after they leave treatment, helping them to create healthy lives in recovery.
She is available to assist them to overcome challenges, solve problems, build effective coping skills, and celebrate their successes. Additionally, Lucia works with the other lead recovery support specialist to supervise the My First Year of Recovery team, offering advice and guidance, managing projects, and taking care of administrative responsibilities.
Lucia began her career at Caron as a counselor assistant in 2003, then worked as a counselor for various inpatient programs, and moved to the My First Year of Recovery Program in 2018.
With the experience of having worked with patients while they were in treatment at Caron, she feels well equipped to help her clients meet challenges and problems as they come up and to pass on to them the confidence that there is always a way through difficulties.
She is a certified alcohol and drug counselor and has a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
Being calm and solution focused with a good sense of humor has gotten me and my clients through the rough spots.
